decisions decisions which camera to get?

I thought it would help to go to some good websites (dpreview, fredmiranda, BETTERPHOTO) to get an idea of which camera to get. I have a Sony DSC-R1 and love it. However, I have been flirting with the realm of SLR... only in my head. All the reviews and comparisons I have read pretty much say the same thing "hold the thing and see" however as you may have guessed, I have narroed the list down to the Canon 400D/Rebel XTi, the Nikon 80D, and the Sony 100A alpha. So far the Sony Anti-Dust (which the canon has too) and anti-shake are the most tempting factors. I feel that the anti-shake feature will help reduce long-term costs in lenses. Ergonomically I feel comfortable with all 3. I just dont know picture quality wise which would be best. I know the canon is CMOS based (just like my current Sony R1) and I am leaning towards a CCD based sensor this time just to have both although I don't know how much of a difference it would make to picture quality. any insight, experience, feedback would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
